  • 5-6 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Provencal herbs (or a mix of dried herbs like thyme, rosemary, oregano, and basil)
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 100 grams (3.5 oz) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1-2 pickled cucumbers, chopped
  • Additional 1 clove of garlic, minced


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Dish:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a large baking dish with a bit of oil or butter.
  2. Layer the Vegetables:
    • Begin by layering half of the thinly sliced potatoes at the bottom of the dish. Season with salt and pepper.
    • Add a layer of shredded Chinese cabbage, followed by diced bell peppers, chopped spring onions, and sliced tomatoes.
  3. Add Flavorings:
    • Sprinkle the minced garlic and Provencal herbs over the vegetables. This will infuse the casserole with aromatic flavors as it bakes.
  4. Prepare the Cream Mixture:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the beaten eggs, sour cream, mayonnaise, and another minced clove of garlic. Mix well until everything is thoroughly combined. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour Over Vegetables:
    • Pour the egg and cream mixture evenly over the layered vegetables in the baking dish.
  6. Add Final Layers:
    • Arrange the remaining potato slices on top of the casserole. Spread the tomato sauce over the potatoes, then sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly across the top.
  7. Bake:
    • Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden and bubbly, and the potatoes are tender.
  8. Add Pickled Cucumbers:
    • Just before serving, sprinkle chopped pickled cucumbers over the top of the casserole for an added zesty flavor.
  9. Serve:
    • Let the casserole sit for a few minutes after baking before slicing. Serve warm, garnished with additional fresh herbs if desired.
